Exceptional picture from this VCR

This is one of the best VCRs I have seen in a while. In all honesty, this unit plays VHS tapes and delivers one of the best pictures on the market today. I saw one of these when I bought it.

  • Legacy model

And a key step we needed to record the time was completely missing (we found that out just before I started reading the return…

  • Automatic station search with memory for tuning channels
  • Poor instructions
